Budget/Endowment/Income

Notre Dame’s operating budget for fiscal year 2016–17 is just over $1.6 billion, and the market value of its endowment is in excess of $10 billion. Two major sources of revenue accounting for a combined 59 percent of the total are student tuition and fees, and auxiliary enterprises (including residence halls, dining facilities, athletics, and the bookstore). A third source of revenue is generated by the University’s endowment pool.

Development

The University has had a successful development program since it established a formal fundraising office in 1947.

In 2015-16, the development office raised nearly $389 million in cash gifts to the University. Of this total, Notre Dame’s alumni contributed more than $213 million to their alma mater; their level of participation is among the best in American higher education. Other important sources of gift income include foundations, corporations, and non-alumni parents and friends. For information on support programs, contact Louis M.
